Forum: etree Subject: Another day in history...

The "This Day in History" feature is pretty cute, but I'm wondering if it would be possible to create an enhanced version that would search for a specific day in history. This could be really nice for finding shows from someone's birthday or anniversary.

I tried searching for my birthday (May 29), and got all shows in May plus all shows on the 29th of any month. Not exactly what I was hoping for. :)

I see that you can use perl-style regular expressions for the search. Might be nice if there were better documentation on how the search works though. And the "another day in history" feature might still be something nice to offer for people who aren't really ready to write their own regular expressions. :)

You seem to get it. Feel free to write this up if you want, and I'll post it in a FAQ.

put the feature request down here:

and jon and the staff will get to it eventually. :) Feel free to put other cool ideas for new features there as well. the list allows the admins to keep track of stuff over the months it takes to find free time to actually implement the requests.

have a good day!
